I'm wondering if a pelt would work well with a Gemini spiral waterblock...That would be awesome:D
I was searching for pumps and found a submersible for $19...its called the maxijet and its 265 gph...I was wondering what the difference is between submersible, inline, and normal pumps ie: reese and the like..Thanx alot! (Waterblocks are swirling in my dreams...:beer: its all fun!

MaxiJet's are probably the most reliable powerhead you can buy. I've had MJ pumps running for years in my reef tank without as much as a cleaning!

Submersible pumps need to be underwater...hence the name. :D Inline pumps are designed to be run outside the system. The are hard-plumbed to the inlet and outlet. The are better because they won't transfer as much heat to the water as a submersible pumps because they are air cooled, not cooled by the water they are sitting in. The only drawback is that inline pumps are about twice what a submersible pump costs. I'm not sure what you mean by a "normal" pump as they can only be inline or submersible.
